Third Age Birders


About the Group:
This is a group for all levels – beginners up. The only requirements are a pair of feet, pair of eyes and a pair of binoculars! Oh yes, and the ability to keep quiet when necessary. Have a look below to find out details of some of our more recent trips.

When and where?

Future meetings

3 December

Our date in December and trip to Bough Beech was scheduled to be Monday 2 December. However, a hospital appointment has now intervened and so I am changing the date to TUESDAY 3 DECEMBER - 9.30 Ide Hill coffee shop, then 10 am. at Bough Beech visitor centre. We will have a wander for a couple of hours. We can be more ambitious with our trips again in the New Year. Please let Briar Blake know if you are able to join us.

In the meantime, look out for winter thrush arrivals in the form of redwing and fieldfare. I was interested to note from Autumnwatch that there is a winter influx of 60 million birds into the UK every year - although who has the job of counting them I can't imagine!

Happy birding.
